This is a simple supplement containing phytochemicals (rosmarinic acid, luteolin and other flavonoids) to target the arm of immune function creating the excessive response causing allergies. It has been demonstrated in scientific studies to desensitize people to allergens and improve immune function. This supplement is manufactured from an extract of the Perilla Seed, nature’s richest source of rosmarinic acid.
Dr. Fuhrman chose to make this available because of the large number of his patients requesting natural assistance with reducing allergic symptoms. Scientific research indicates these ingredients gradually improve lung, sinus, and immune function leading to a healthier and less reactive immune response.
Perilla Sinus is not medicinal and it will not suddenly decrease allergic symptoms. But combined with nutritional excellence, it supplies additional nutrients that target the allergy response and can lead to improvements and even victory over allergic symptoms over time.
